Hike at Sanborn County Park in Saratoga

Posted on Feb 28, 2016 in

Sequoia/Peterson Grove Picnic Area Parking Lot (the parking lot to the right after paying at the kiosk)

NOTE: This hike has also been posted on other lesbian Meetup groups. 

This little jewel tucked away in the hills of Saratoga is a beautiful trek through a variety of terrain…..redwoods, oak, fir and madrone.  The first ~2 miles of this ~5 mile hike entail a steady uphill climb (with a couple of steep sections).  Elevation gain is ~1300 ft.  The remainder of the hike is a gradual downhill.  This hike will take about 3 hours, depending on the speed of the hikers.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE: 

1)  PARKING is $6.  We’ll meet at Sequoia/Peterson Grove Picnic Area Parking Lot (parking lot to the right after paying at the kiosk). 

2)  We will wait until 10:15 for those who have RSVP’d.  So please change your RSVP by early morning if you decide not to attend.  Call me at 408/655-7499 if you are running late or lost. 

3)  Hiking poles are suggested (but not required) due to a couple of steep sections.  Also, shoes with at least a little traction are suggested because the steep sections are somewhat slippery. 

4)  Bring water/snacks if you wish.

5)  We will probably be having lunch afterward in downtown Saratoga.

6)  Rain cancels.
